An 8-megapixel camera with GigE technology has been unveiled by SVS-Vistek GmbH. The svs8050 has a four-tap CCD sensor, and the output offers two RJ45 connectors and transmits at 2 Gb/s via two cables. The progressive-scan camera works with a Kodak interline transfer CCD with a diagonal of 22.66 mm. Maximum rate is 20 fps with full 332 x 2496-pixel resolution. In partial-scan mode or while using areas of interest, images with fewer lines can be read out at a higher speed. Binning with 2 x 2 pixels is possible, and the camera can be used in one- or two-tap mode. It is available in monochrome and color versions and is supplied with SVCapture configuration software and a software development kit. Input/outputs are provided and can be controlled via Gigabit Ethernet.
